outdoor terrace. Available for private hire, the space exudes a more exclusive ambiance, furnished with British-designed pieces such as Copper Shade pendants from Tom Dixon, sofas, chairs and bar stools from Morgan Furniture, and custom-made ottomans, glass- topped coffee tables, and fumed oak poseur tables from RHA Furniture. Meanwhile, the 361 well-appointed guestrooms adhere to an earthy colour palette, punctuated by citrus accents in the walls, upholstery and artwork. Wardrobes are thoughtfully built into the wall, giving the impression of extra space. Leather headboards, PTT casegoods, and lighting by Heathfield & Co and Chelsom complete the look. A sense of Britishness is introduced through the artwork, curious pieces that depict the elevation of UK towns and cities, neatly annotated in pencil by Rachael Clewlow. Pre-fabricated bathroom pods, constructed


by Bathsystem, offer both a bath and shower with sanitaryware and ceramic from a number of suppliers including Grohe, Bossini, and Villeroy & Boch. Additional facilities include a 660-capacity ballroom, ten state-of-the-art meeting rooms, business centre, boardroom and a fully- equipped Living Well Health Club, complete with 12-metre pool, sauna, steam room, whirlpool and 24-hour gym. While Hilton London Wembley’s scale,


location, and commemorative references will primarily attract tourists, event-goers and corporate groups, this is far from a themed hotel. The history of the area is embraced through every facet of the design and subtly woven into the narrative. And, with Wembley’s regular high profile events attracting crowds of up to 90,000, plus further development in the form of a 280,000ft2


retail destination set to


open in 2013, demand is unlikely to wane any time soon.
